My team and I are looking at Sitefinity. We are using a standard asp.net membership app and am wondering how to migrate our existing users to the sitefinity database. Is the password and password salt algorithms that are used the same? What I mean is, if I were to copy a user from membership to sitefinity and copy their password and password salt into the sf_users table would that be enough? I just tried that and it looks like I can't. What I did as a simple test was manually created a new user lets call him 'picardalpha1' and then manually copied an existing test users', from my local database, password and password salt into the 'picardalpha1' users record. That didn't work.
Any documentation or links, or thoughts about how to do this would be great.
